Faces of Faith: Celebrating Cancer Survivorship

Hosted by the Faith-Based Cancer Disparities Network and Roxbury Community College

Faces of Faith is a photographic exhibit of cancer survivors focused on sharing stories of survivor ship to encourage the demystification of cancer, and supporting those who are living witnesses that one can maintain a vibrant life as a cancer survivor. On November 8, 2018 the annual Faces of Faith exhibit celebrated the reveal of 15 new cancer survivors.

 

Pink & Black Education and Support Network

Supporting and activating Black breast cancer survivors to improve outcomes and quality of life.

The Pink and Black Education and Support Network was launched by the Boston Public Health Commission in October 2017. The Network leverages the successful work of the Pink and Black Ambassadors, a group of Black female breast cancer survivors who collaborated with the Boston Public Health Commission in 2005 to increase awareness of breast cancer among Black women.
